Ramayan replicated its success from late ‘80s and ‘90s, and perhaps even outdid that with its performance on its return to Indian TV. The serial shattered records galore, starting by taking the highest premier ratings in five years, and then leaving all shows behind to become the most-watched show on TV once again. However, the record that really left the citizens mesmerised has been that it has now also gone on to become the most-watched show across the world, even beating Game of Thrones.
Arun Govil, who plays one of the most important characters of Lord Ram in the show, recently shared his take on its latest achievement in an interview with an entertainment portal. The veteran shared that Ramayan performing well and becoming the ‘best in the world’ in terms of TRPs was something that made him feel good.
The actor added that he was extremely happy for everyone associated with the show. He also called it as a ‘huge thing.’
As per reports, 7.7 crore viewers tuned in to the serial as on April 16. On the other hand, Game of Thrones finale in May 2019 was viewed by 1.9 crore people.
Earlier, Dipika Chikhalia, who plays Sita, was also quoted as saying in media reports that it was ‘surreal’ for her to see the numbers, because she herself was a Game of Thrones fan. She believed that it was the millennials who might have been driving the numbers.
Ramayan was directed by late filmmaker Ramanand Sagar. The show also featured actors like Sunil Lahiri, Dara Singh, among others.
Apart from Ramayan, its related show Uttar Ramayan has also been wowing audiences in the same way. As the shows ended, netizens were felt emotional over the journey of over a month.
